WORKS are to be begin later this month in preparation for the £86.9m A164 and Jock’s Lodge Junction Improvement Scheme. East Riding Council plans to carry out a major overhaul of the road system to replace the junction near Beverley – which currently links the A164 and the A1079 – in order to improve congestion problems on one of the East Riding’s busiest roads.
But before that, the council will construct a new mini-roundabout at the junction of Main Street and Beverley Road, Skidby, and create a new bus stop – marking the first step towards the upgrade. The work is scheduled to start on Monday July 31 and take 16 weeks to complete.
The A164 and Jock’s Lodge Junction Improvement Scheme, which will follow later this year. will involve the replacement of the Jock’s Lodge Junction with the construction of a new roundabout along the A1079 Hull to York Road, and the creation of a new road connecting it with the Lincoln Way roundabout on Minster Way in Beverley.
Two new roads, travelling northbound and southbound, will connect the new A1079 roundabout with the A164 further south, near Coppleflat Lane, Bentley.
The A164 will also be widened to a dual carriageway between Coppleflat Lane and the roundabout at Harland Way, Cottingham. North of Coppleflat Lane the A164 will remain a single carriageway but with A1079 bound traffic diverted on to separate new link roads. Visit www.a164jockslodge.co.uk for more information.
TICKET OFFICES at Beverley and Hull Paragon railway stations would close under plans out for consultation that would see up to 1,000 offices shut across the country. The move has been condemned as catastrophic, particularly for elderly and vulnerable passengers, by trade unions.
